    You're basically given a clue on the website or app to find a container in a real life location and have to find it. (They're usually well hidden from the public eye)

    Once you do, you usually sign your name on a slip of paper in the container and if there are items inside you take one and leave one.

    There are over 2 million of these located across the globe - chances are your neighborhood has a bunch. I've found about 30 so far. Latest one was under a lamp post in my local taco Bell.

    Thats similar but this is a real thing.

    I used to. It can be fun.

    I hate my neighbors so I'm actually gonna put a cache in the walking path behind their house.

    They got in a dispute with me because they wanted to know what I was doing behind their house... now they'll have all sorts of visitors and enthusiasts there.

    Just so we're clear, I was joking. Not that I plan on making it a hobby, but it could be a great way to improve one's ability to navigate.

    I think I saw them do this on Amazing Race once. I didn’t understand what they were doing. Still not sure I get how it works.
